Fae Myenne Ng reads, May 2024

May 30, 2024

Best-selling author Fae Myenne Ng’s new memoir, Orphan Bachelors, offers a personal, timely portrait of San Francisco’s Chinatown and of a family building a life in a country bent on their exclusion. Hua Hsu called Orphan Bachelors, “so many treasures at once: an enthralling memoir, an act of reckoning, a history of American exclusion and Chinatown resilience, an attempt to conjure the vast horizons that her forebears were never allowed to imagine.”

Organized and hosted by author and UCLA professor Mona Simpson.
